What is turbulence—and how can you calm down about it?

Rough air happens everywhere, from ground level to far above cruising altitude. But the most common turbulence experienced by flyers has three common causes: mountains, jet streams, and storms.

At NCAR, Sharman has been working since 2005 to build much more precise “nowcasting” turbulence tools.

Here’s how it works: an algorithm currently installed on around 1,000 commercial airliners analyzes information from onboard sensors to characterize each plane’s movement at any given moment. Using data on forward velocity, wind speed, air pressure, roll angle, and other factors, the algorithm generates a local atmospheric turbulence level, which is fed back into a national system every minute. Used in conjunction with national weather forecasts and models, the tool annotates forecasts with real-time conditions, which in turn helps to strengthen weather prediction models.

How to learn to draw with iPad and Apple Pencil | iMore
Apps
ShadowDraw doesn't support tilt or pressure sensitivity for Apple Pencil, but it has a bunch of interesting tutorials to help show you how to draw in the style of various artists.
How to Draw also doesn't support pressure for Apple Pencil, but the app does offer a nice breakdown of drawing common animal shapes, and doubles as a cute coloring app for budding artists.
How to Draw Everything hasn't been updated in a few years, but the library is a good step-by-step resource to learn how to draw popular anime and game characters, animals, and other elements. You can't draw in it, though, and it's not updated for Retina devices.
Calligraphy Penmanship has its quirks — it's not the most well-designed app, and its pressure controls take some tweaking. But if you're looking to practice basic calligraphy forms, it's a neat option. (The app is free, though you'll have to pay $3 to keep using it after the initial 80-hour trial.

Apple and Shazam sing the same tune
The core audio-recognition software itself was created in Silicon Valley by Avery Wang, a specialist in digital signal processing with a PhD in electrical engineering from Stanford University.

Mr Wang was sitting in a café in Palo Alto in 2000 when he came up with the breakthrough technique for identifying a song from recordings, even with low-quality phone microphones and background noise. 

His original patent, filed in 2001 jointly with his Stanford professor Julius Smith, for a “system and methods for recognising sound and music signals in high noise and distortion” remains a foundational part of Shazam’s technology and intellectual property portfolio. 

Mr Wang is the only one of Shazam’s four co-founders still working at the company. After he joins Apple, along with the rest of Shazam’s research and development team in Silicon Valley’s Redwood City, the iPhone maker will have fresh capabilities not only in music identification but the ability to recognise a wide range of audio signals, from TV and movies to the sound of people laughing or clapping.

“Apple isn’t buying Shazam for music. Instead, Shazam is an augmented-reality play,” Neil Cybart, an Apple analyst, said in his Above Avalon email newsletter on Monday.

US companies, he adds, have been more successful at commercialisation and scaling up a new technology than their British counterparts. “What we are really good at in this country is innovation and creativity. We should try to play to our strengths and be willing to partner or sell out to US companies.”

Xiaomi's Ambition - stratechery by Ben Thompson
There is a younger generation, though, the Xiaomi generation, that has grown up in a country that has been growing by near double digits every year they have been alive. To their minds of course China is a global power, and why wouldn’t they embrace Chinese brands? Xiaomi is tapping into that nationalistic bent, and the red star on their mascot’s hat couldn’t be less subtle:

Smartphones Overstate Their Social Intelligence - NYTimes.com
Like a bumbling concierge, your phone often tries to assist you without pausing to consider any of the basic information it collects about your life. For instance, your phone has access to your calendar, and it also knows your physical location. So why isn’t it smarter about sending you the right notification at the right time — for instance, not during a first date? Why can’t it prioritize alerts from your wife and your boss over notifications for tweets from your high school pals?

The good news is that some of this seems to be happening, slowly. As my colleague Molly Wood wrote in May, start-ups have lately been creating a new breed of programs known as contextual apps. These aim to process information about how you use your phone to improve how it works — for instance, by arranging the icons on your home screen according to which apps you use most often, or at certain times of the day.

Mr. Singleton cautioned that intelligently sorting notifications might be more difficult than filtering email. There are many kinds of notifications, and there’s a higher penalty if an algorithm guesses wrong; you’d be very angry if your phone didn’t show you an important alert just when you needed it (“your bus is arriving!”). It isn’t clear when artificial intelligence algorithms will be up to that mission-critical sorting task.

As that occurs, the phone will have to morph into an intelligent filter; it will need to be able to figure out who needs you, and why, and decide when to demand your attention. In other words, the smartphone will have to finally start living up to its name.

Can you read a novel in three hours?
That’s not to say Spritz is without problems. Dialogue is bewildering at such a clip. Plug a book by Elmore Leonard or George Pelecanos into Spritz, and you’ll lose the plot in minutes. And the tech has a real problem with repeated words. At one point, O’Rourke reflects on the vacuous activities available in New York City, musing on how he could walk into a bar and “drink Pinot until bohemianism and Billie Holiday worship saturated my soul and I was drunk, drunk, drunk”. When Spritz tried to run those last three words, the on-screen text appeared to stall temporarily as it displayed words with identical commas after them. For a moment, the app looked profoundly confused, as if it had also had a little too much Pinot.

Spritz demands total concentration, especially at higher speeds. Look up for one second at 700wpm, and you lose eleven words – and trust me, when O’Rourke gets deeper into investigating why the Ulm religious group is tweeting and Facebooking in his name, these are not words you can afford to miss.

If Spritz is going be used as a novel-reading tool, then the technology needs to be able to handle complex, nuanced writing.

For shorter documents, or situations where you really need to digest something in a hurry, Spritz is a wonder, a technological marvel. But it has a long way to go before it changes the habits of readers.

Prolost - Blog - How to Take Good Photos for Under $1,000
Post-process your photos using Adobe Lightroom. Lightroom is about $100, and worth every penny and more.

In Lightroom, you’ll both organize and process your photos. If you don’t do either of these things, your photos won’t be good. Failing to process your photos means they’ll look mediocre. Failing to organize your photos means that no one will ever see them.

I’m sure you’ve been tempted to buy a camera that costs around $1,000, but the above items, which total well under a grand, will serve you better—and they comprise a real system for making, organizing, and sharing better photos. Welcome to the world of people complimenting your photography by asking you what kind of camera you use!
